Hello! This article presents the latest updates of Volt Dashboard, a premium seed project built on top of Bootstrap 5 and Flask. The product comes with extended user profiles, admin roles, improved authentication, and Docker scripts. For newcomers, Flask is a leading backend framework used to code from simple one-page websites to APIs or complex eCommerce solutions.
Evolutions in latest version (v1.0.14)
- ✅ Extended User Profile
- ✅ Password checker (registration page)
- ✅ Change password, Self Account Deletion
- ✅ Automatic suspension on failed logins
- ✅ Admin ROLE (edit all users)
- ✅ Improved Docker Scripts
✨ Extended User Profile
The product can be started using a Docker environment using a single command executed at the root of the project. Once the app is running in the browser, users can register, sign edit, edit their account, and update passwords. A self-deletion option is also provided.
Extended User Profile - Update Password and Self-Deletion
✨ Admin ROLE
This version of the product allows the creation of ADMIN users using the CLI and
create_admin custom command.
$ cd flask-volt-dashboard-enh # root of the project $ flask create_admin # call CREATE_ADMIN cmd Enter Username : app_admin # input Enter Email: firstname.lastname@example.org # input Password: ******* # input Super User created successfully.
Once the superuser is created, we should be able to authenticate, edit the user's information, change the suspension state or delete users.
Admin View - Edit registered user
✨ Improved Authentication
The security of the product is also improved via the password strength check during the registration and automatic suspension on consecutive failed logins.
Once the user is suspended, only the Admin user is able to change his state.
✨ Future evolutions
The product is under heavy development for more features:
- ✅ Social Login for Github & Twitter
- ✅ Async tasks execution via Celery
- ✅ Stripe Payments
- ✅ Deployment automation (AWS, HEROKU)
